There are some pretty cool playgrounds where I live, but the ones I like best are those incorporating sand and other natural elements like water.

That explains why I’m obsessed with the five playgrounds featured here. Check out our roundup of the most lust-worthy ones out there and you’ll find everything from a watermelon jungle-gym to giant dinosaurs made entirely of discarded tires (by far my fave). Take a look!
